Inspections

Construction Work for Council Assessed Project
A minimum number of required inspections is listed against proposed work in Council’s Schedule of Fees. The fee for those inspections is paid at the time of lodgement of an application. Where extra inspections are conducted, payment for the inspection is required before the inspection is conducted.

Inspection Conducted By Persons Other Than The Assessment Manager
If the builder/owner wishes to have a building inspection of the construction work undertaken by a person other than the Assessment Manager, then the Assessment Manager must be notified for consent before the inspection is conducted. The Assessment Manager is required to maintain a register of competent persons for which it has assessed as competent to do the inspection on behalf of Council for that stage of the work. The inspecting officer must submit a certificate on the approved form regarding the outcome of the inspection to the Assessment Manager within five days of conducting the inspection.
